To the Ends of the Earth

One month of winter and I have had enough, so it was with the utmost of awe and respect that I viewed a show at The Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, Ma yesterday. To the Ends of the Earth is an exhibition of Polar Landscape paintings. Frederic Edwin Church, William Bradford, Rockwell Kent, and others have works in the show. Some of the paintings are massive and convey the vast desolation, beauty, scope and danger of the North and South Pole regions. I don't like winter any better but I may complain a bit less knowing what these painters went through to seek their vision.
The show runs thru March 1, 2009.
